Cold Soba Noodle Salad


This cold salad is easy to make and great for prepping healthier options for the week's lunches or snacks. I like to add some heat by mixing sriracha or chili garlic paste into the Thai peanut sauce.

5 salads


  • 1 (14 ounce) package dried soba noodles

  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil

  • 5 (3-cup) storage containers

  • 1 cup shelled edamame

  • 1 large carrot, shredded

  • 4 green onions, thinly sliced

  • ½ cup chopped cilantro

  • 1 ¼ cups Thai peanut sauce

  • 5 (2-ounce) dressing containers


  1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil. Drop in soba noodles and return to a boil. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 7 minutes. Drain.

  2. Toss noodles with sesame oil in a medium bowl. Divide noodles evenly between the 5 containers.

  3. Top noodles with edamame, carrot, green onions, and cilantro, dividing them evenly between the 5 containers. Place lids on containers. Pour 1/4 cup peanut sauce into each dressing container. Refrigerate until ready to eat. Mix 1 dressing container with 1 serving of soba salad to serve.

Cook's Note:

Thai peanut sauce can be found in the Asian section of your grocery store. Pre-shelled edamame can be found in the frozen section.
